    How To Use CBD Oil for Erectile Dysfunction

    There are increasing claims that CBD help improves your sex life for erectile dysfunction. This article talks about what CBD is, how to use CBD oil for erectile dysfunction, forms of CBD oil for erectile dysfunction, and the legality of CBD.

    CBD is usually claimed to have various benefits for the health of humans. However, one of the most controversial topics of CBD is if it can help improve your sexlife. It is said that your sexlife is as important as your physical health; sex has several benefits that can help improve our physical health. Sometimes people get a bit excited and anxious about how they will perform. CBD’s ability to reduce anxiety helps to eliminate fear and focus more on the game itself. Let’s look deeper at the relationship between CBD and our sex life.

    What is CBD?

    CBD, Cannabidiol, is one of the many cannabinoid compounds that is found in the cannabis plant. CBD has several benefits, including pain, anxiety relief, and stress levels. Other cannabinoids, such as THC, are not popular as CBD even though they also have their benefits. THC is usually responsible for the psychoactive effect on consumers of CBD products. Other compounds, such as terpenes and flavonoids, are usually responsible for adding flavour and aroma to the plant and CBD products, although they might have therapeutic benefits.

    Because of the benefits CBD offers, several companies extract and use it to make products that might benefit overall health. You can find CBD oil, topicals, and edibles such as gummies in many flavours and designs that seem to fit your preference. Although many might be familiar with other benefits of CBD, one possibility that many don’t know is its use for erectile dysfunction.

    How to Use CBD Oil for Erectile Dysfunction

    The research on how CBD might improve your libido is still sketchy. More research is being done. However, the effects that CBD has might positively affect your sex life. CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for several body functions such as sleep and pain.According to Bhambhvani (2020) suggestion, using cannabis might positively impact your sex life as endocannabinoid receptors are also present in the reproductive organs.

    Although the existing research is still sketchy, there are suggestions on how CBD can improve your sex performance. According to Moltke &Hindocha (2021), CBD instills a calming effect that reduces stress and anxiety, which helps to relax the blood vessels and improve the blood floor. Chakraborty & Ghosh (2020) also noted that stress could be one of the major causes of low libido, where taking CBD oil before sex relieves stress and improve your sexual performance.

    Insomnia is one of the causes of erectile dysfunction, usually characterized by a lack of sleep. According to Kuhathasan et al. (2019), CBD oil may have the ability to improve your sleeping pattern when taken an hour before going to sleep. CBD's ability to interact with the endocannabinoid system helps to influence the sleep-wake cycle. Therefore, improving your sleep cycle might help improve your erectile dysfunction.

    Forms of CBD Oil for Erectile Dysfunction

    You can find several CBD products in the market, which can be used differently to improve your sex life,

    • According to Tringale et al. (2011), CBD edibles in meals are perfect when used 30 minutes to 1 hour before sex to promote more fulfilling sex; this is because they might first need to pass through the digestive system before getting into your bloodstream.
    • Using the sublingual method to take CBD oil might help you reduce your sexual anxiety and stress levels a bit faster, which might be causing your erectile dysfunction.
    • You can perfectly use CBD oil massage for foreplay because it has pain-relieving properties that can help relieve your body tension for a better sexual experience.
    • Several brands have come up with CBD oil lubricants that you can use to reduce dryness during sex. Using these lubricants makes your sex experience much better because although lubrication generally reduces pain during sex, CBD might greatly relieve this pain.

    Is CBD Legal?

    CBD products are legal if they have a THC level lower than 0.2% in the UK. The Misuse drug act removed CBD from the list of highly restricted drugs. CBD products can be found in three main forms:full-spectrum CBD,which has all the compounds found in the cannabis plant, broad-spectrum CBD, which has all the compounds from the cannabis plant except THC, and isolate is 99% pure CBD. According to Nahler, Jones & Russo (2019), all the compounds in full-spectrum CBD give an entourage effect.

    Conclusion

    CBD is known for its various health benefits. Although there is still more research on the same,some link CBD oil to erectile dysfunction. Stress, anxiety, and insomnia are among the causes of erectile dysfunction. However, taking CBD oil can be a remedy to improve your sex life. Try and use CBD products in the form of edibles and topicals just before sex to improve your experience. There are also CBD lubricants that can be used during sex.
